At this year’s Ligna, Kaeser offers an extensive range of powerful solutions, including both individual modular components as well as complete solutions – for every stage of a compressed air system’s life-cycle: from highly efficient rotary screw compressors for diverse compressed air production needs, to the associated treatment systems, intelligent controllers and management systems and beyond. Kaeser’s innovative solutions are not limited to equipment, however: advanced service options offers flexible and individualised servicing models, including predictive maintenance and cost-effective operator solutions.
Specific capacity improvements of up 12 percent amongst rotary screw compressors 75 kW and larger have now been implemented thanks to continual refinement of system components. These efficiency gains are thanks to further enhancement and optimisation of the rotary airend, the component that actually produces the compressed air, as well as the Sigma Profile. The new rotary screw compressors of the DSD, ESD and FSD series therefore deliver significantly better cost-effectiveness and increased flow rates – which positively affects the energy cost balance.
Compact and oil-free
Wherever oil-free compressed air is required, yet installation space is at a premium, the new compressed air container stations are perfect for the job. Equipped with a CSG or DSG-series rotary screw compressor with an integrated rotation dryer, these compact systems deliver oil-free compressed air with a pressure dew point to -30°C.
SAM 4.0 delivers efficiency and transparency
The Sigma Air Manager 4.0 (SAM 4.0) is the most important component for both ensuring maximum efficiency as well as making the compressed air supply Industrie 4.0 compatible. This powerful compressed air management system not only perfectly coordinates all components of a compressed air system amongst one another, but with its further refined 3D Advanced Control, also ensures maximum availability and energy efficiency of the compressed air station. Moreover, the SAM 4.0 functions as the central node of the system and is also the basic requirement for taking advantage of Industrie 4.0 services, such as permanent energy management and predictive maintenance capability.

Established in 1919 as a mechanical engineering workshop, Kaeser Kompressoren is a family-owned business and today is one of the world’s leading compressor manufacturers and compressed air systems providers. Kaeser’s production centres are located in Coburg (main plant) and Gera, Germany. The company has approximately 6000 employees worldwide.
Kaeser’s comprehensive product range comprises stationary and portable rotary screw compressors, stationary and mobile reciprocating compressors, vacuum pumps, rotary blowers, filters, dryers, air tools and accessories. Furthermore, Kaeser’s state-of-the-art compressor control systems with advanced IT technology take compressed air efficiency to the next level and beyond. Both users and the environment therefore benefit from the consequent energy-savings.
Subsidiaries and authorised partners in over one hundred countries ensure that users are able to enjoy all of the benefits that the very best in compressed air engineering has to offer. Key markets include the EU, the United States, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region. Kaeser owes its enviable reputation not only to the exceptional efficiency and quality of its products, but also to its reliable field service. More recently, the other industry-leading services offered by the company – such as operator models for compressed air stations, concepts within the framework of Industry 4.0 and predictive maintenance – have increasingly moved to centre stage.
Kaeser’s many years of strong growth and expansion are directly attributable to its passion for innovation and strict quality standards. Both are driven by the hard work and dedication of its employees, whose expertise, combined with ongoing professional development, keep them attuned to the very latest technology. The company’s opening-up of key global markets in recent years has also created many additional jobs and secured existing ones, both in Germany and around the world.
The company is headed by Thomas Kaeser, Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing, grandson of the company’s founder, and Tina-Maria Vlantoussi-Kaeser, Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing.
